Omnipotent fun, but for older teens only.

I can't belive what they have done.

This is not even a shadow of the flash version. You have to pay to make the elements or wait a set time limit to be able to make elements. When I got the app I expected the flash version (play it, it is worth it) but with more stuff. But instead I got the flash version that will squeeze you for every penny, I has more elements, sure, but at what cost. This was one of the few games that defined my childhood, now instead of remembering it as one of the best parts of my childhood I will only remember it as a part, a part that was dragged through the mud by this app. If they wanted to charge money for the game I would have been fine with it, hell I would have bought it, but to make people pay or have to wait to make elements. That killed it. Don't bother getting this game. Find and play the flash version, you'll be able to find it somewhere. It has less stuff but you wont have to pay to use the core part of the game.

Is It Any Good?

DOODLE GOD is a fabulously original concept. Can you create everything in existence, from swamps and clay to dolphins and plasma out of four elements (earth, air, fire, and water)? There's a whole lot of trial and error, mixing one thing with another just to see what happens. But there's also a good strategic aspect to the game. If it gives you a clue such as "What could you combine to form plankton?" you can look at what you've got and decide that your best shot would be water and bacteria. Poof! You've got plankton -- which you can then combine with other elements to create even more new things. This game is addictively fun.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
